It is an awesome hostel and one of the best HI Hostels I stayed up to now during my time in Canada. The hostel is only a few minutes from downtown and the C-Train Station away. All rooms (washroom, bed dorm, games room & reading room, kitchen) are very clean and very nice furnished.

Attraction tip

Calgary Tower - open for night viewing, awesome views. Shopping - only 5% tax so best place to shop in Canada! Bankers Hall - little food court on Level 2+3 - L2 grocery store puts on a roast dinner for $13, big piece of roast beef and lots of veggies!

Budget meal tip

Brekky was good but if you want a cuppa with milk through the day, get a cup of milk at brekky & keep it in the fridge as whitener is the only alternative.
